Personality Shapers

Why are you the way you are? Here are seven things that shape your personality.

Personality is defined as the thoughts, actions, and emotions that make you who you are. It’s the way you view yourself and how you relate to the world around you. Ever wonder why some people are extroverted, adventurous, and confident while other people are introverted, fearful, and shy? Is it the result of nature or nurture, genetics or environment? This is the big question when it comes to what shapes personality, and it’s obvious that each has a powerful effect. How big an effect and if one can overpower the other is unclear.

As you think about your own personality, here are a few things that have made you into the person you are today.

Heredity

Was your mom gentle and soft-spoken and your dad creative and moody? Then chances are high that you’ll follow in their footsteps. In fact, genetics seems to play the largest role in shaping aspects of your personality. Your temperament and disposition are most influenced by genetics, while your values and beliefs are shaped more by the environment you grow up in.

To support this theory, numerous studies have followed the lives of identical twins separated at birth. It’s amazing the similarities in their likes, dislikes, and way of life despite years of separation.

We are all born with a unique genetic blueprint, which lays out the basic characteristics of our personality as well as our physical health and appearance…and yet, we all know that life experiences do change us. - Joan D. Vinge

Birth Order

Were you the firstborn, middle, youngest, or an only child? The order in which you were born has an effect on your personality. Firstborns are likely to be controlling, high achievers, reliable, and conscientious. Middle children are known to be people-pleasers, loyal friends, and peacemakers. The youngest children are generally free spirits, fun loving, outgoing, self-centered, and attention-seekers. Only children tend to be leaders, diligent, and perfectionists.

Life Experiences

Was your childhood a happy, secure time with the love of your parents or were there traumatic events, loss of loved ones, and strife? Did you attend a big public school or a small private school? Did you travel, read a lot, play sports, or spend time outdoors? Both the good times and the bad have a way of shaping who you are as a person.

IQ

Your intelligence level has an effect on your personality. People with higher levels of intelligence usually do well in school, get along with their peers, and make wise choices. With a lower IQ you’re more likely to struggle in school, get involved with the wrong crowd, and make unhealthy lifestyle choices.

Appearance

You may not be aware, but the way you look has influenced your personality. Your weight, height, skin tone, hair color, and attractiveness affect the way you behave, how you interact socially, and how others perceive you.

Culture

The area of the globe you grew up in plays a factor in who you turn out to be. Your surrounding culture and its religion, customs, values, and rules help determine your personality, whether you like it or not. Someone raised in the grasslands of Africa will think and act differently than someone who grew up in New York City. It’s simply unavoidable.

Family Life

Your mom, dad, and siblings have played a part in shaping who you are. The way you were raised, the values your parents instilled, and how you were treated by those closest to you influenced your personality. A loving, nurturing, healthy home life makes a different imprint compared to a home that’s neglectful, unstructured, and unloving.
